The author was formerly professor of political economy at the University of Münster. Though his book is not particularly readable it deserves attention because, by placing the economic policies of postwar and Nazi Germany in their proper historical perspective, it shows that present tendencies, which seem to us so revolutionary, are in reality only stages in a process that began with German political unity, if not before.
